Easier Said Than Done

Real Happiness

Lewis’s right to say this came from his experience of losing. Three key philosophical points he attempted to make here:

  1. It’s still possible to be happy when we lose.
  2. We will lose.
  3. It is possible to depend on something that we cannot lose.

Following a routine of quiet focus and reading (even against the tide of time and responsibilities), keeps me from thinking that my circumstances are permanent. Otherwise, I get side-swiped by disappointments and pain.

 

There is a place

Of hope

Though

Even in the deepest, darkest cavern of pain

But it is only accessible

Through the humble portal

Of surrender
